for that conversation to take place. i discussed it with prime minister benjamin netanyahu and both of us agreed to, and fortunately they were able to begin the process of rebuilding normal relations between two important countries in the region. this is a work in progress. it is just beginning. there will still be significant disagreements between turkey and israel not just on the palestinian question but on a range of different issues. they also have a whole range of shared interests and they both happen to be extraordinarily strong partners and friends of ours so it is in the interests of the united states that they begin this process of getting their relationship back in order and i'm glad to see this happening. >> you can watch the rest of the president's news conference on our web site c-span.org, where you will find video from of the events we cover and live streaming of the c-span networks. >> the most striking difference between what is happening today and what happened a hundred years ago tacomas of the parade. 100 years ago the parade was a parade so much as a riot. police refused to pro
nuclear weapons. benjamin netanyahu said that iran would need about one year to build a nuclear weapon. joining me now with how this would how it would affect the u.s. and how we should confront this. what do you think? >> i think first of all as an american he wants the president to succeed and want him to take the right action but in view of the actions and apology tour, between israeli and the palestinians and it creates doubt. and doing nothing in the summer of 2009 to move against the iranian government and the fact that israel, worse than any ally has been treated. white house has treated them like a beggar. >> sean: why would israel, why would the prime minister who is a very smart man. would he or should he trust obama? i wouldn't trust him if i were him. >> he has to say publicly he does. i don't know what is going on behind the scenes. >> sean: i think it's for public consumption. >> i think netanyahu is a smart guy and making a case and making it clear if he has to he will act unilaterally that could bring president obama in. i'm sure that net snet very concerned. >> sean: h
was israel to meet with benjamin netanyahu. then to the west bank to build on relations and then in jordan's capital. the u.s. reaffirmed alliances with the king. so overall, how significant is all of this? let's bring in george mitchell. he was appointed by president obama in 2009 as special envoy for the middle east peace. thanks for joining us, mr. mitchell. good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> first off, how significant was this trip overall? >> i think both significant and successful. the president had several objectives. he wanted to visit israel itself, an important step. connect and make his case directly with the people of israel, which i think he did very well. second, to try to make the case publically and privately to both israeli and palestinian leaders that it is in their self-interest to sit down and negotiate a peace agreement between them. it's not a gift from one side to the other. it's in the self-interest of both israel to get security for its people. the palestinians to finally get a state of their own. he also reaffirmed the strong friendship and support with
minister benjamin netanyahu. >> my main goal on this trip has been to have an opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when obviously what was already a pretty tough neighborhood has gotten tougher. and let them know that they have got a friend in the united states. that we have your back. that we consider israel's security of extraordinary importance to us. >> mike: but the next day while speaking to a younger audience the president urged israelis to put themselves in the shoes of palestinians. >> it is not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of their own. [ applause ] >> living their entire lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements not just of those young people but their parents and grandparents every single day. >> mike: how did the visit go over with israelis? joining us is former israeli ambassador to the united nations and president of the the jerusalem center for public affairs. author of the rise of nuclear iran. hi, great to see you and really happy to have you back. the president says -- >> good to be here, gove
the president and benjamin netanyahu and king abdullah of jordan. the focus on 0 the end game in syria and the threat from iran. this is going to occupy much of the president's time. >> reporter: it certainly will. if you look right now at the region, syria is imploding. it is exporting refugees. it is exporting instability. israel feels very threatened, very unsure about its future. that's obvious by the way they are walling themselves in psychologically and physically. and i think the president went there to give israel a big hug. some people in the region think that he went too far, that he went too far to embrace dynism as an ideology not just the state of israel, the palestinians generally were disappointed with the trip. nothing concrete coming out of it. the idea was to make israel feel secure in an increasingly insecure region. >> all right, richard engel, just back from the region. he's in new york this morning. thank you very much, richard. to david] and e.j. dionne. what did the president accomplish in terms of how did he perform? that's a big aspect of the trip. >> it was a

"the daily beast," obama and netanyahu make peace. and from "the christian science monitor," a show of warmth. joining me is p.j. crowley. good to see you. >> hello, chris. good morning. >> evidence of this warming relationship came from the prime minister himself. let me play for you what he said. >> i think that people should get to know president obama the way i've gotten to know him. >> do you sense just from what you've seen over the last 24 hours or so, p.j., that this relationship is warming? if that's true, how important is it? >> well, it is important. you know, there are major strategic issues that -- and a really shared vision between the united states and israel on the big things. iran, the middle east peace process, and i'm sure the president and prime minister talked about syria as well. clearly, they've had strains in their relationship, but these are both skilled politicians. yesterday was about, you
on everything. he was on the limited apology to turk yes. i think iran is a gut issue for benjamin netanyahu. and certainly having publicman more -- opinion more on his side can only help the president as he relates to the new government. so i would say that's the first part. and i think dennis and i agree. the policy summit -- these guys are going to be having something like four or five hours together. probably the most intense conversation of time that netanyahu and obama ever spent together. obama said there's no leader he has except more time with than than netanyahu. but each one has -- there's some sober expectations. they have been at this four years already. obama knows that netanyahu maybe doesn't have rabbi ins -- each one comes to the meeting with more sober expectations, and that could be a good thing, i think. i would say that -- from the israel side, my sense is that, i just thought i would lay out how i saw that conversation and lay out some other key points, sirra, lebanon, and the palestinian issue. on the iran issue, i think it's clear that the netanyahu people go in belie
fences with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu after the two leaders sparred over expansion of jewish settlements and areas claimed by the palestinians. on the trip mr. obama will head to the palestinian authority for a meeting with president mahmoud abbas. >> this reflects a deep commitment by president obama to see the limitation of the two state solution. >> reporter: not everyone there is happy the president is coming. some protesters in bethlehem burned ape poster of mr. obama. the president rounds off his trip with a stop in jordan for a meeting g meeting. administration officials have set low expectations for the trip saying there will be no major announcements of a breakthrough in the israeli-palestinian peace process. >>> the mayor of kansas city missouri, was in the middle of delivering his state of the city address when a man shoved him, and grabbed the microphone. he managed to shout obscenities, slammed the mayor before police tackled him out. eyewitnesses say he scuffled with the officers for ten minutes backstage before he was finally escor

benjamin netanyahu issuing a stunning apology to the turkish prime minister for this, an israeli commando attack that killed nine people on a gaza bound flotilla nearly three years ago. our senior international correspondent ivan watson is now joining us from amman, jordan. your base in turkey right now. i have to tell you for all of the things the president may have done over the past 48, 72 hours on this trip to the middle east, clearly the most productive is healing this, at least getting the start of a healing process between these two u.s. allies, turkey and israel. >> certainly president obama putting a diplomatic feather in his cap by basically getting these two very important middle eastern allies of the u.s., turkey and israel, to talk to each other. the two prime ministers in a phone call, prime minister benjamin netanyahu of israel calling his turkish counterpart from the tarmac basically of the airport with the u.s. president alongside him and basically bringing an end to nearly three years of ruptured relations between these two very important middle eastern powers. the israe
benjamin netanyahu there, that they reportedly have an icy relationship, but perhaps this will help mend some fences between those two. it has been said that the president is not there to try to forward the peace process officially, but he is just making basically an appearance there and talking directly to the israeli people. >> steve: the problem for the president right now is the israeli people for the most part don't trust him because they don't trust him to take care of iran, which wants to blow up the jewish state. >> brian: right. but also you have to look at netanyahu who is having trouble of his on. he just put together a government this week, last week. they wanted to get that done before he got here and they got to talk number one about iran, number two about iran. and i think syria has to come up and i think they have to be worried about hezbollah to their right. >> alisyn: they need each other. the president, president obama and benjamin netanyahu need each other. we need to have a good relationship between these two countries. netanyahu famously was close to mitt romney. th
.s. about his trip. >> we are seeing the president in a little -- he is walking out there with benjamin netanyahu. got what he wanted or not. >> absolutely. and politics changes a lot. last year netanyahu was giving him a hard time. >> while we watch the president, shameless plug. >> shameless plug. happy birthday to my dad, tom costa. turned 62 today. >> the center for american progress issued a report, said $1.1 trillion would go to the american academy with comprehensive immigration reform. >> looks like we might pass it. >> we have a great column about how the father of the ucla basketball star has molded his career. >> go georgetown hoyas. change our history. that's it four this edition of "the daily rundown." we'll see you on monday. coming up it's chris jansen and company. >>> areas like topeka are going to get snow. you could be dealing with a snowy sunday. and while that leaves a little room for balls and tees, it doesn't leave room for much else. there's no room left for deadlines or conference calls.
to touch the public opinion. and then the leaders especially been minimum n benjamin netanyahu will follow. this man walked back from lots of principles just to get the soldier back. netanyahu was very, very attuned to the public opinion. so i think they understood they have to grasp the young generation, the people of israel. i think president obama did that from the very first moment he stepped down in israel. you know he was off that plane, he took off his jacket, he was informal. he hugged every kid he saw on the way. he first he took netanyahu, he talked about you know his wife, his late brother. his kids. and today he took the israeli public. but you know, i'm not sure because i was listening to that speech and i was asking myself, was it the caring parent giving a pep talk to his adolescent child saying -- >> was it too paternalistic? >> no, in that sense, saying we'll always have your back, but you have to take your future in your hands. we're not going to be there to do that for you. this is your last wake-up call. or will there be steps to follow? this i'm not sure, because i mea
to something robin just said, what we saw here today at the press conference was benjamin netanyahu moving much closer to the president's position on this. as we know, there's been tension on this. bench min netanyahu sees this in a more immediate way. there was that lecture in the oval office. i think what we saw today is a prime minister who recognizes that the president has been reelected and it's in his interest to try to ease some of those tensions. but getting back to syria, when i was in israel last week, the most immediate threat that i gathered was syria and the possibility that some of those, some of these, some of that could spill over and affect israel. >> the fog of war, having covered 12 wars, is always difficult in those initial stages. and there are lots of accusat n accusations by both sides. they're sending chemical weapons testing kits to the rebels. it is clear that if either side used chemical weapons, it will be a game changer, whether it's in terms of what the outside world is prepared to do against the regime of president bashar al-ass al-assad. but we're not there yet.
. the president's position on peace, the president tried to get them to the table, benjamin netanyahu has been demanding, palestinians demand he stopped settlement construction. the president said he wants them back at the table and didn't accept the precondition idea. he moved a little on the netanyahu way. from the white house perspective, it is difficult. you covered it more than 30 years. he may have raised hopes too high. from the white house perspective, you have to say it was picture perfect. >> what was the reaction, jessica, on the ground. you went to the jerusalem convention center where he spoke to several thousand young israelis. what was the reaction you felt and saw? >> they were moved, moved by the president's speech and a little surprised, wolf. the criticism by israelis of the president has been that he lectures them too often, on an emotional level doesn't understand why jews in israel feel so fiercely they have to act early in self defense in many instances. for the first time, many of those critics felt he understood because he connected it to his own experience as an afric
exactly with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister here, this is what you need to demand as a population. it was meant as a way to counter feelings in israel that perhaps president obama is anti-israeli. analysts say he accomplished that feat of being able to sway public opinion here by this massive charm offensive which was very well choreographed. today a little bit more of the ceremonial types of things. laying a wreath at mount hertzel ceremony where famous leaders are buried. he visited the holocaust memorial and then he has lunch with prime minister netanyahu. this is their third or fourth one on one meeting of this trip as they try to get down to the nitty-gritty issues. obviously the israelis want to talk most about iran, iran, iran and president obama wants to talk a little bit about the palestinians. that is where he's headed next, over to bethlehem to try to talk to them. however, the charm offensive he had over there, the warm and fuzzy feelings he's getting in israel hasn't worked so far with the palestinians. >>brian: was there any backlash of the president talking beyond t
. personally with benjamin netanyahu, in a bigger sense with the whole nation and he seemed to tilt away from the palestinians and toward the israelis, he's no longer going to insist that israel stop the creation, or the construction of settlements as a pre-condition to peace talks. so, you know, it may be a b, b-plus, no great accomplishment, but certainly an okay trip. >> clayton: to elaborate on that point, was this an overtly pro-israel trip? pressure on syria, pressure on iran standing with israel or did you see it differently? >> in terms of syria and iran shall the president has been opposed to those two regimes for a long time, but in terms of where he comes down on the issues separating the israelis and palestinians, he's tilted as opposed to the first term, towards the palestinians and israelis. in a personal sense, it was a charm offensive between himself and benjamin netanyahu. and the fact he was going to get him there to the prime minister and the aid on the ship that was trying to break the israeli blockade three years ago, that was a significant event. >> jesse: and chris, you
to the middle east since taking office. he'll arrive in israel on wednesday to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. topic one, the threat of a nuclear iran. the president will also travel to the west bake for talks with palestinian authority president e emamannious and he'll make a 24-hour stop in jordan before flying home. >>> tomorrow republicans will kick off an effort to attract new voters and reform way they choose their white house nominee. cnn's political editor is paul sustain hauser and he's here. good to see you, my friend. >> not on the campaign trail. >> republican party chairman reince priebus offered a preview of the plan this morning let's take a look at what he said, and then we'll talk. >> it will include hundreds of people, paid across the country from coast to coast, in hispanic, african-american, asian communities, talking about our party, talking about our brand, talking about what we believe in, going to community events, going to swearing-in ceremonies, being a part of the community on an ongoing basis, paid for by the republican national committee, to make the cas
in two days. israel's new housing minister says prime minister benjamin netanyahu's cabinet plans to keep expanding jewish settlements. president obama had long urged israel to halt building on the disputed land. >>> a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows many more americans continue to side with israel rather than the palestinian authority. but most also prefer to leave peace negotiations between the two sides rather than involve the united states. 55% sympathize more with israel. just 9% sympathize with the palestinian authority. while 18% have no opinion. >>> big trip for president obama. there is a perception by some that -- that the president has devoted more of his energies and his, his vision to arab issues rather than israeli issues. a perception by some, fair or not. so there is a sense that he is going over there to sort of maybe give the impression that he is mending fences. >> and by, by doing what he has done as far as arab issues goes it puts him on the opposite side of where a lot of people want him. because of our tight relationship with israel. that's something that
. >> president obama's relationship with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu soured over the course of the four years. open disagreements over those israeli settlements and borders. >> we believe the borders of israel and palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swats. >> my israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines. because these lines are indefensible. >> netanyahu lectured the president in the oval office at that event. the low point of their personal relationship. the erosion of trust between the two leaders was just one in a series of events which derailed the president's quest for first term peace. in the arab spring a major disruption as israel lost its most important arab ally, egyptian president hosni mubarak. most effective player in getting palestinians to the table. clashes between israel and hamas and gaz za in november of last year ended in a fragile cease fire. hamas which is u.s. considers a terrorist organization emerged stronger with the palestinians deeply divided between the palestinian
. and the relationship with prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been frayed a little bit. so it's an important reinforcement, symbolic visit. but i think the president's also going to talk about a middle east peace package. about laying the groundwork for that. he's going to meet with the palestinians. he's going to meet with the king of jordan. push, i think, the israeli people in that direction. so it's more than symbolism. it's reinforcing a very strong relationship. we have to talk to israel about what's happening in syria, the iran situation. so on many fronts it's a useful, positive trip but no big break. >> especially when it comes to geopolitical relationships here's what president obama had to say last week on his radio tv with his relationship with bebe netanyahu. >> we've got a terrific relationship. he's very blunt with me on issues, and i'm very blunt with him about issues and we get stuff done. >> blunt? the trip is going to highlight talks with netanyahu. but the speech in jerusalem, more to be done with visiting with mahmoud abbas as well. could this be obama helping to set up
relationship with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. athena jones has a preview of the president's trip and what he hopes to accomplish. >> reporter: five years after he visited israel as a candidate, president obama is going through to reassure skeptical israelis about where he stands on iran. >> i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon. that is a redline for us. it's something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world. >> reporter: while he says all options are on the table to stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, the president also wants to convince israeli leaders to allow more time for diplomacy. >> what we're going to be doing is continuing to engage internationally with iran understanding that we've set up the toughest sanctions ever. it's having a significant effect. >> reporter: a tough sell analysts say when israel believes iran is closer to a nuclear weapon than the u.s. does. and the tense relationship between the countries' leaders doesn't help. >> president obama and prime minister netanyahu
in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us su
message to prime minister benjamin netanyahu as well as the people of israel and other people in the region that he stands firmly with israel. as you know, the president and the prime minister have had a somewhat rocky relationship. so it's partially to smooth over that relationship. the president has taken some criticism, particularly during the last presidential campaign, that he wasn't a strong enough ally to israel. i think part of it will be to smooth over that perception. but i think you will see the president reiterate the fact the united states will do whatever is necessary to make sure that iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon. of course, that is a big concern for israel and will also sort of reiterate the united states will try to continue to isolate syria and to make sure that at some point assad does step down from power soon. so i think those are two of the key issues you're going to hear him talk about. also, martin, this is not just a trip to talk to the leaders. according to a recent poll in israel, 10% of israelis view the president favorably. so i thing hek he's
minister benjamin netanyahu as business-like. the president's first visit to israel as commander-in-chief begins tomorrow. presenting him with a chance to turn up the charm in tel aviv and jerusalem. this week gives president obama and prime minister netanyahu the opportunity to show the world their relationship has room to grow. and both men are ready to take positive steps for the region. florida congresswoman debby wasserman-schultz chairs the democratic national committee, is in israel and joins me now. >> thanks, luke. >> there's criticism thrown at president obama, even from prominent jewish democrats, the latd ed koch, who said president obama had let the very important relationship with israel deteriorate. as one of the highest-ranking jewish democrats in the united states. how important is it for president obama to have a successful visit in israel? >> the late ed koch endorsed president obama's re-election. this is an important opportunity to reaffirm and celebrate the incredible and historic relationship that the united states and israel have. president obama will trav

trappings of a state visit. joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get away from congress the president reaffirmed what he called the unbreakable bond between the two nations. a sentiment that was roundly reciprocated. >> the people of islam welcome you with open heart. we deeply appreciate your friendship and we share your hope that the middle east will enjoy a future freedom, prosperity, and peace. >> i'm confident in declaring that our alliance is eternal. it is forever. >> and while relations between the president and prime minister have been described as tense, to say the least, on this trip the two appeared down right chummy. at this afternoon's joint presser the two of them even teamed up to take on the man now forever to be known as nbc's encouraincorrigible political d. >> another question i had for you is -- >> chuck, how many have you got? do you guys do this in the israeli press? you say you get one question? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question? she was very well behaved, cluck? >> this is not a kosher question, bu

thing benjamin netanyahu said and the first question the president got. first was about iran and the first question the president got was about syria. these are two big looming questions, especially for israel, which they see, it seems, as a more immediate problem than often the u.s. has indicated. >> warner: i think with prime minister netanyahi and the president acknowledged that, it's almost-- i mean, it's much more in the neighborhood of iran. let's take iran first. but that it's really because of israel's less-developed military capabilities that if military action needs to be taken and the prime minister made clear today israel is not going to subcontract its security out to anyone, that it has a shorter window to act. that said, they also actually have a difference on when the point will come at which iran will be so far along with the number of cent rifortunatelies it has and enriched uranium, no one can stop it from getting a nuclear weapon. a moment will come in which iran can say we're leave the i.a.e.a., close the doors, and it would take three weeks. one, yes, th
landed in israel and made this comment to prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> (inaudible) oops, well, we hope congress did not hear that. is president obama turning the charm offensive in another direction towards israel? >> they've got a friend in the united states. we have our backs. >> we extend our hands in peace and friendship. israel has no better friend than the united states of america. >> greta: sounds friendly, but everybody noted that president obama waited until his second term to visit israel. what is this? real friendship or political ambassador john bolton. and i don't think what he said about congress having fun, but your thoughts on the trip to israel. >> you overheard the comments he made to french president nicolas sarkozy and obama said you think you've got it bad i have to deal with mimm every day. look, i think that both president obama and prime minister netanyahu has a symbolism to show he that the relationship is good. netanyahu formed a new government and obama wants the political benefit from israel's many supporters in the united states who he's retoricall
and talk. now yesterday at the press conference with benjamin netanyahu, the issue of the middle east peace process and the president's strug elgles ins first term to get it launched as he wanted to do in that first year of his presidency, he discussed that and he admitted that he's learned from some mistakes. >> i am absolutely sure that there are a host of things that i could have done that would have been more deft and would have created better optics. but ultimately this is a really hard problem. >> reporter: now, they also discussed, netanyahu and obama, the issue of iran and syria. yesterday the theme of the day was red line. so on iran, the big news is that prime minister netanyahu and president obama agree that iran is at least a year away. netanyahu agrees with the u.s. intelligence timeline on that issue. but it sounds like netanyahu got what he wanted to hear out of the president, which is making sure nothing was being taken off the table. take a listen. >> i think that there's a misunderstanding about time. if iran decides to go for a nuclear weapon, that is to actually manufact
, is he shoulder to shoulder with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on iran? you can be sure, as the prime minister sees the president later today, he will be very happy with what the president said in the speech about iran, saying that he has the sense of urgency that is required and that iran should know it's time for diplomacy is not unlimited. >> the president making the case that the u.s./israeli military relationship, the security cooperation, has never been better. our jerusalem correspondent, sara sidner, who watches and lives this story every single day, let me get your thoughts on what we just heard, sara? >> reporter: i thought one of the poignant moments is when the audience reacted to something he said about the palestinians, that occupation nor expulsion is the answer. you saw a very huge round of applause. and it gives you some idea of how israelis think. a lot of people think that there's all these very negative thoughts toward the palestinians, but the majority of israelis actually do want the palestinians to be able to form their own state. they do recognize that peace be
1990s when benjamin netanyahu was first prime minister, his own cia director threatened to resign and they may know things that we don't know. again, i'm not saying i'm against commuting a sentence, i just think there's some things we don't know about what in fact he did. >> you're right. but it's 12 more years that he's served. >> yes. >> by the way, the way clinton handled those things was not the best part of his presidency. thank you, robert wexler and peter, who improves his image with me every day. we'll be back after this.

but it is with the people on the ground there. with benjamin netanyahu and the people of the palestinians. and they've not known in their reactions with each other any ability to proceed. the president didn't go there with a new plan. all he is saying is get back to the table. it is not a very strong message. a realistic message given the situation. >> as we reported off the top, the reaction to president obama's visit has been a mostly positive one there. this is what the "jerusalem post" had to say this morning. living in a neighborhood, and even in a world in which there are those who have not exactly accepted our right to legitimacy to be here, having the most powerful man in the world come and give us a public bear hug is very important. one cannot help but ask, how much frustration, aggravation and anger. what had been prevented in both israel and the united states had obama made this trip and adopted this approach at the beginning of his presidency. why could you think do have we think he did not reach out this way sooner? >> he is there. he did go there. he went before he was president. thi
benjamin netanyahu and visited a tex sch show where israeli engineers showed them a snake-like contraption that shgoes in smal spaces and shows them what's going on in those small spaces. and he visited the and met with palestinian president abbas. that was all by lunchtime and then spoke at a convention center before an audience of more than 2,000 israelis. most of the audience was made up of college students but government officials and civil leaders in the audience. shortly after beginning his remarks, the president as i mentioned was heckled. he responded by saying the heckler made him feel right at home. one advantage of having, you lie, screamed at you during a speech during congress is heckling probably never rattles you again. the crowd give him standing ovation in response to the heckler and cheered with approval at this point in the speech. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideologically of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or sky above because israel's not going anywher anywhere. >> it makes sense that these young israe
